True, but in those last two years they have ranged from the initial 'grey, parked, scratch when you look at it

I just find it odd that my 7 year old beater G19 (and I do mean beater - tons of range time, classes, and been carried thousands of hours) is holding up better (finish-wise) than a Gen4 that I have carried maybe a handful of times. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
JPB: I'm well aware they aren't high end pistols.
See my 'work truck' analogy. Why pay the same money for a lesser product?
Just trying to get a feel for what the folks at Smyrna are turning out these days.
Keep 'em comin', folks! Thanks!
